Re: Auto Shutdown of Pi after closing a GUI Python Script

Changing the daemon to true for all my threads worked. My program will auto boot up, and it will shut down the pi on exit. Now I can move onto building the frame for the project to go in.😎

Re: Auto Shutdown of Pi after closing a GUI Python Script

Hello again Dougie, I tried out your method, but I get the same result. IF I manually start up my script then close it, it will automatically shut down. IF the script is started automatically on boot up, it will return to the desktop window when the script is closed. Looking closer at the script, I ...

Re: Auto Shutdown of Pi after closing a GUI Python Script

Thank you Dougie. I'll try this out as soon as I get a chance. Working overtime and I've got a geek session on this afternoon at Jaycar Electronics learning about the other board..... Arduino. I came across a tutorial from a business called Core Electronics which shows you how to set up a physical s...

Auto Shutdown of Pi after closing a GUI Python Script

Hello fellow Pi people, My project is soooooo close to being ready for implementation, but there is one thing stopping me...... getting the Pi to shutdown immediately after the script is closed. In a nutshell, my project is a sports timer for a dog sport called flyball. After months of work I have s...

Re: tkinter and GPIO, how to set up a physical input button

Thank you ghp, I'll add this to my list of possibilities. I've been posting on a forum at one of the electronics stores I've done business with "Core Electronics", and they've have offered some great advice. Some of it is more simple to start off with, some of it is more complex and I may need to ge...

Re: tkinter and GPIO, how to set up a physical input button

Hey MrY, I came up with a solution to my problem but it was something a little different. I noticed that there are really only 2 ways a user can input into a tkinter app........ with a mouse click on a button OR with a press of a keyboard button. The Adventures in Raspberry Pi book has a project whe...

Re: tkinter and GPIO, how to set up a physical input button

Thank you MrY! I'll delve deeper into this pigipod module. Hopefully I'll be able to adapt it to my program. I just finished a project from the book titled "Adventures in Raspberry Pi 2nd Edition", where the final project in the book is to turn your pi into a MP3 player.... controlled by 4 buttons o...

tkinter and GPIO, how to set up a physical input button

Hello to all the Raspberry Pi people out there! I'm new to the forum and I only have a couple of months experience with the Raspberry Pi and the Python programming language. The project I am working on is a little unusual.... it is a timing system for a dog sport called 'flyball'. In a nutshell, fly...
